Antigua Guatemala y Volcan Pacaya

Luego de registrarme en el hotel y cuadrar la subida al Pacaya para las 14h00, doy una vuelta por el pueblo. Las calles empedradas y las casas coloniales me recuerdan un poco al centro de Maracaibo pero con clima de montaña. Una de las calles principales tiene un arco colonial amarillo y una...

Visita a Tikal y viaje a Antigua

Tikal es bestial! El minibus nos recogio a las 4 30 am en el hostal y llegamos a la puerta del parque a las 6. Supuestamente es la mejor hora porque con la salida del sol todos los animales del parque se ponen de acuerdo para humillar al gallo. Pero lo cierto es que amanece a las 6, a esa...

Colonial exploration in Nicaragua

Coming over to Nicaragua was the first of many crazy border crossings, which have turned out to be fairly hectic affairs with people trying to rip us off left, right and bloody centre! Luckily a local Costa Rican American (possible drug smuggler) told us the 411...essentially just pay everyone...

Our Amazing Race: Challenge Buying a Van in Guatemala

Our five day car search finally came to an end!!! The first day we walked all around town like chickens with our heads cut off. We collect and call numbers out of the newspaper classifieds, searched the main street where for sale cars are parked and asked tons of locals where to buy a vehicle....

The small town of Anitgua

Antigua is completely opposite of Guatemala City. The town is set in a valley surrounded by three Volcanoes. The streets are cobblestone and the building are like Spanish / Italian / Southern European style. People here are friendly and there is definitely a community / family atmosphere. We...

Antigua

We arrived here after a 10 hour bus trip from Flores in the north of Guatemala. Our mission: to learn Spanish. In one week. We quickly found a good double room at a cheap hostel. Just minutes later a guide started talking to us and we asked him if he knew any good Spanish schools. Tired as...
